Max Cavalera Regrets Not Keeping Sepultura

Max Cavalera

(Metal Hammer) Sepultura founder Max Cavalera believes he should have kept the band name and fired the other band members rather than leaving the outfit in 1996.

But he says he just didn't have the vision to make the move, partly because his life was in turmoil at the time. Cavalera's departure fuelled decades of acrimony between him and Sepultura. He went on to form Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy, featuring his brother Igor, who remained with Sepultura until 2006.

Describing Sepultura as "really close to my heart" Max tells Metal Insider:
"Now, after all this time passed and I think about it, Igor and I should have just fired those two a**holes and kept the name.

"Why we didn't do that, I don't know - at the time we didn't have the vision to do it, so I just quit." Read more here.
